    I received my last DWI in 2015, as a result of this event, I decided to quit drinking altogether and have been sober ever since. I received two previous DWIs, one in 2008 and one in 1998.
    I am a retired general contractor and I'm extremely interested in pursuing a second career in trucking with Maverick Transport. They seem like a fantastic company. The company website and other places on the internet state that their requirement is no DWI or DUI within the past 3 years. I'm wondering if they have a lifetime maximum. It's been 8 years since my last offense. I plead to a misdemeanor third offense. I have no other criminal record. Any guidance or information on this would be greatly appreciated.

    If they are only asking for info for the last 3 years, then it should not be a problem. Do not volunteer any information that is not asked for!

    Something else to consider -- Maverick's hiring area is roughly between I-35 over to I-95, excluding the upper northeast...& the southern half of Florida (below I-4).

    Do you live within that area, somewhere?

    Some companies don't want a DUI (or similar) conviction within the last 3 years; others, within the last 5; & still others, the last 10.

    If they only ask/care about the last 3 years--& you live inside their hiring area -- then you should be good.

    And you're right -- Maverick is as good a place as any other to start off in the flatbed world.
